Pokémon GO Event Review: Hoopa's Arrival Event

Bleeding Cool News 06 September, 2021 - 07:21pm

Yesterday was the Hoopa's Arrival Event in Pokémon GO. Let's see how Niantic followed through on all of this Hoopa build-up.

While the actual Hoopa encounter could have had a bit more punch, I'm ultimately happy to see this new Mythical added to Pokémon GO. Time will tell how this release will fit into the overall fabric of the game, as we may just be seeing more Hoopa encounters building.

Is Hoopa Good in Pokemon GO & Details on Best Moveset

DualShockers 06 September, 2021 - 07:21pm

It’s not often that players have the opportunity to capture a Mythical Pokemon within Pokemon GO.

Up until this month, there were a total of eight in the game; Mew, Celebi, Deoxys, Jirachi, Darkrai, Victini, Meloetta and Genesect.

Now joining those, rather fittingly during the brand new Season of Mischief, is none other than the Mischief Pokemon itself, Hoopa.

As with all new Pokemon though, players are asking “Is Hoopa good?” Here are details on that, plus what its best moveset is.

Hoopa’s Psychic and Ghost typing and stat combination mean it is going to be a very niche pick in Pokemon GO’s GO Battle League PVP mode.

While its type combination is fantastic for tackling the Fighting-type Pokemon that tend to appear in abundance, there are way better picks than the Mischief Pokemon.

Cresselia and Deoxys outperform Hoopa in the Great and Ultra League, with the likes of Lugia, Armored Mewtwo and more also being better Ultra League picks and it fares no better in the Master League.

There are far fewer Fighting-types in the Master League for Hoopa to tackle and even so, Lugia, Mewtwo, Togekiss and others outperform it and it’s certainly not helped by its lack of bulk when compared to other Pokemon.

If you do decide to run Hoopa in Pokemon GO’s PVP mode, there is only really one moveset that is worth considering.

Pokemon GO: How to complete Hoopa's Arrival Collection Challenge

Sportskeeda 06 September, 2021 - 07:21pm

The Mythic Pokemon Hoopa's spotlight in Pokemon GO continues as part of the game's current Season of Mischief, and plenty of the game's events and objectives are currently geared towards the elusive trickster.

A new collection event called "Hoopa's Arrival" is currently underway from September 5, 2021, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm local time. This event ties presently quite well into the current increased Pokemon spawn rates for Dark and Psychic-type Pokemon, making the collection significantly easier than it might otherwise be.

Pokemon GO players can also still use things like Lure Modules and Incense to give themselves a hand.

In order to complete the collection event for Hoopa's Arrival, Pokemon GO trainers will need to catch the following Pokemon:

To coincide with this challenge, Pokemon appearance rates have increased with regards to Dark and Psychic-type Pokemon. Each hour of the event allows certain Pokemon to appear more often if players use items such as Incense or Lure Modules.

The hours are broken down as such:

During Psychic-type hours, the following Pokemon will appear more often:

Players using Incense or lures will find these Pokemon more often during Dark and Ghost-type hours:

Additionally, Hoopa is part of the collection event, meaning Pokemon GO players will need to capture it in order to complete their challenge.

This can be achieved by completing the third stage of Hoopa's Special Research Story known as "Misunderstood Mischief", which requires trainers to make five curveball throws, catch ten different species of Pokemon, and earn a total of 5,000 Stardust.

Hoopa will appear as a reward for completing all three of these tasks, albeit in its Confined form. However, the Confined form is exactly what's needed for the collection challenge, so players hoping to take on Hoopa can fit those research tasks into their schedule during collection.

'God bless all their souls': Neighbors, friends left to wonder why Lakeland family shot to death

Sportskeeda 06 September, 2021 - 04:09pm

About 20 minutes later, he heard gunshots coming from behind his Oak Run Drive home.

“I heard around six or seven gunshots and... that’s when I called 911,” Rivera said. “They told me they were going to send some units.” 

Once Polk County sheriff’s deputies arrived several minutes later, a shootout began

According to the arrest affidavit, the girl told investigators that Riley entered their home and asked for “Amber,” and then shot everyone inside, including the family’s black shepherd Diogi. Judd said the dog was named for one of the Sheriff's Department's K-9 officers, which was killed in the line of duty along with his handler, Deputy Sheriff Matt Williams, in 2006. 

“What breaks my heart is the little kids, especially the baby – Jesus Christ,” said Rivera, noting that Justice Gleason always waved hello and was kind when he once spoke to him about his missing dog. “God bless his soul, he’s gone. God bless all their souls, especially the baby.”

According to the affidavit, when Riley was asked why he shot the baby, he said, “...because I’m a sick guy. I want to confess to all of it and be sent to jail.” 

It all began with an odd incident on Saturday evening, when Riley spotted Gleason mowing his yard, pulled up in his truck, and told Gleason that God wanted him to speak to Amber. 

Gleason then called one of the two women at the house to come out and she also told him to leave or she would call the police. 

But the family did call 911. Judd said it took his deputy six minutes to reach the residence, located about half a mile north of Lake Gibson High School. The deputy spent about 20 minutes looking for Riley, but he was long gone. 

Judd said because Riley had not threatened anyone, their search was not more intense. 

According to Judd, Riley went to his home in Brandon and told his fiancée that God was telling him to “talk to Amber.” The fiancée told investigators that Riley had been talking about having conversations with God for the previous week after working security at an Orlando church.  

His fiancée said she told Riley that God was not telling him to talk to anyone and they had an argument, with Riley telling her he had “no room for doubters in his life,” Judd said. He locked himself in a room and told her to go away, so she went to bed. When she woke up, he was gone.

Riley returned to the home in the early morning hours Sunday and the first 911 calls started coming in at 4:23 a.m., with neighbors telling emergency operators that there had been a shooting. 

PCSO northwest Shift Commander Lt. Duane Tompkins, 40, a 17-year veteran with the department, arrived at the house first and found the suspect’s truck, with a Marine Corps license plate, on fire. In addition, glow sticks lined the path from the road to the house and to another home behind the main residence. Tompkins was hearing popping sounds coming from the engulfed truck. And then he saw a figure in the front yard, wearing camouflage from head to toe. 

He “looked as if he was ready to engage us all in an active shooter situation, but we didn’t see a firearm,” Judd said. “Now understand we’re way out in the country area, so it’s not unusual to see people in camo. But he was garbed up and it appeared that he had bullet proof vests on and he immediately ran back into this house. We didn’t know who he was.” 

Tompkins then “heard another volley and a woman scream and a baby whimper,” Judd said.  According to the arrest affidavit, that is when Riley shot Gleason, Lanham, the baby and the 11-year-old. 

Tompkins tried to get into the front door, but it was blocked, so he ran to the back of the home and got in through what photos show to be a sliding glass door – with the glass shattered.

Investigators wrote that Riley told them, “they were pleading for their lives and he continued to shoot them anyway. The suspect admitted one of the victims was hiding and kept saying, ‘Please no, please no’ while he shot her."

Then the gunman began firing into the front yard, pinning down three deputies outside, Judd said. A responding Lakeland police officer provided cover so the deputies could escape.

Deputies in the sheriff’s helicopter, circling overhead, saw a man come out with his hands raised. Deputies on the ground moved in to handcuff him. Riley had been shot one time by Tompkins, so a Lakeland police officer put Riley in the back of a patrol car and rushed him to Lake Gibson High School, to a waiting ambulance. 

“He made statements….’You know why I did this,’” Judd said. “That was his statement. He said ‘There’s three in the house.’ He described himself as a survivalist and then he said ‘I’m taking meth.’” 

After Riley was arrested, Polk County Sheriff’s Sgt. Tyrees Graham heard the 11-year-old girl calling for help and Graham rushed inside to get her before he knew if Riley had left booby traps inside the home. 

“The 11-year-old – she looks our deputies in the eye and said: ‘There’s three more dead people in the house,’” Judd said at a Sunday morning press conference outside of Lake Gibson High School, half a mile south of the shooting scene. 

More photos of the happy couple followed. Then in April 2021, the couple held up a onesie at a baby shower. On May 18, a very pregnant and happy Lanham appeared in a photograph with Gleason and their dog Diogi. 

She announced that Jody Dex Gleason was born on May 21, 2021, at 9:33 a.m. 

The whole family, including Jody's 10- and 11-year-old sisters doted on the baby. Facebook photos taken by Lanham show Justice Gleason clearly smitten with his son, a huge grin on his face as he holds the boy in snapshots in their home, at the beach and even when he sat the infant on the back of a motorcycle.

May you and your beautiful wife Theresa and baby rest in peace with our Lord. You will be missed!” Carolyn Chistian wrote. “You were such a good man and friend to everyone. Praying God comforts your family and everyone that knew you all.” 

Pansy Mincey Smith told The Ledger that she had gone to school with Gleason’s father, Joe, who died several years ago. 

“RIP Justice Gleason. The last time I saw you, you were getting on the elevator at the hospital,” Smith wrote on Facebook. “You were smiling from ear to ear about your new little baby boy, you had that big teddybear for him. This is so heartbreaking, son.” 

Jeremiah Benson, who owns JayBeezs Tree Service, said he met the family last week when he was surveying the neighboring property for tree removal. He coordinated his work with Cathy Delgado, who he said owned the family compound that includes three houses. A 2019 Facebook post from Lanham shows that the family bought the property so they could all live together.

Benson said he had also spoken to Gleason on Saturday.

“He was telling me it was OK to cut the fence and use their driveway,” Benson said. “He said he appreciated what we were doing. I just don’t understand.” 

State Attorney Brian Haas was on hand for two press conferences on Sunday, noting that the family and the community are victims of this shooting. 

"I guess the big question I have on my mind is why,” Haas said. “It’s so frustrating that we will not know the why today — maybe ever.”

Best Hoopa Confined moveset in Pokémon Go | Dot Esports

Dot Esports 05 September, 2021 - 07:09pm

Hit hard and then retreat into the rings.

Players can finally capture and use the Mythical Pokémon Hoopa as part of Pokémon Go’s Season of Mischief content. This means that it can appear in PvP and other battles now. 

Hoopa will be a little harder to build around since it is still new to the game. However, its powerful offensive stats and STAB moves leave you with a powerful option to add to your roster. 

The main thing to work around with Hoopa’s Confined state is its awful defenses. You won’t have any survivability, so make sure to only bring it out when you know you have an advantage or can clean up a game without having it around in the later stages. 

Hoopa Confined has a max CP of 3,359 at level 40, with 261 Attack, 187 Defense, and 173 Stamina. As a Psychic/Ghost-type, Hoopa has access to the following moves, all of which are STAB and will deal large amounts of damage:

Your best combination in any scenario is Confusion and Shadow Ball, with both being incredible moves in their specific slots, playing well together off of Hoopa’s typings, and dealing up to 15.3 damage per second. Doubling up on a Psychic or Ghost-type option doesn’t really seem like the best play since it would limit Hoopa’s effectiveness. 

If you do need to double up, Confusion and Psychic is a better combo than Astonish and Shadowball, though both still deal between 92 and 96 percent of the Confusion and Shadow Ball combo’s damage. 

No matter which build you use, you will always need to be extremely wary of opposing Ghost and Dark-type Pokémon, along with any Pokémon that can deal a lot of damage very quickly. Hoopa won’t last long in bad situations, but if you play your cards right, you can cause some real mischief with the Mythical Pokémon.
